Whers's the Money?

The author, Tom Wolf said in an interview this week:

"Wall street is like Broadway, it's an anachronism. Nothing new happens there".

He went on to say, that more influence on the money comes from Greenwich Connecticut, implying home of the hedge fund world, I believe.

It's an interesting observation. I know he is right about Broadway. Think about the extraordinarily committed and gifted people working in that community. Skilled performers, producers, stage hands, designers, musicians, maintenance and security experts.

All that incredible human passion and commitment to create unusually expensive and often empty spectacles in a world where theater is today, so profoundly needed.

The theater historically, has always been a place for the society to talk to itself about itself.

What are we saying to one another today?

And, could there be a relationship between what we are not able to share openly, that puts us into a bankrupt sense of value at all levels. Affecting our health fiscally, mentally and ethically?
